So, weird question on mules.

My friend who sold me April has this equine. I call him a mule, but he tells me that's not what he is. Supposedly, he's called a hennessy, if I even spelled that right.

Apparently, a women informed him that, because his breeding was a stallion bred to a jenny, he was simply related to a mule. Honestly, this makes no sense. Just because the breeding is one way and not another doesn't make it a different beast... right?

A mule is a male donkey to female horse. Hinny is a male horse to female donkey.

Alright, so I guess you do learn something new!

I love Sam. He's so goofy and when he tries to "neigh," it sounds like a sick and dying cow that's choking.

Yes PLEASE get a video of it!
I have a mule too that I suspect might be a hinny, so I'd love to compare sounds!
Plus I love mules/hinnies, I would love to see him.

Ah bless him! He is so awesome looking! He does kind of remind me of mine...
How tall is he? I wish I could come abduct him.

Not very. He's large pony sized at best. I'll take a picture next to him sometime. He's a packer though, and a lovely ride. First time I took him out, he was so eager that I had a hard time getting him to walk and not trot (trot was so smooth). So, we were going above a walk most of the ride, the ride was an hour, and he still only had a little sweat under the saddle and just behind the ears. He hadn't been ridden for 3 months before I got on him.

Oh yes, the Donkey crosses have amazing stamina. It's really quite incredible. It is odd that just a little switch up makes it a totally diffirent type, but sure enough! I love hearing the Mules bray - would love to hear a hinny :p
